2008 Recipient - Samvaran Sharma
As a high school student, SAMVARAN SHARMA was an active student leader and contributed to many extracurricular activities outside the classroom, including Town Crier, SHS Crew, Varsity Math Team, and Speech and Debate.  During his four years on the Speech team, he served as Tournament Director and Treasurer, and primarily competed in the categories of Student Congress, Extemporaneous Speaking, and Public Forum Debate for which he placed at both the NCFL and NFL National Tournaments.  Although SAMVARAN is sad to leave competitive high school speech, he looks forward to returning as a coach in the years to come.  He will begin pursuing his studies as an undergrad at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the fall.
